EMAUS is finally getting stabilised after holding a voluntary creditors’ meeting.
The charity looks after children and youngsters, the elderly, women in situations of risk and people with disabilities.
Emaus desperately needs funds and as well as the new donation website www.euroamonth.com, it has set up an official donation-box network.
“We are trying to create an independent, regular income without having to rely on dwindling and sporadic government funding,” explained Montse Fiter. “Once again we are hoping that the expat community up and down the Costa Blanca will continue to back us as usual.”
The Emaus donation containers in the photograph are the official collecting boxes, the charity explained, adding: “Please beware of any other type of container claiming to raise money for Emaus. There have been reported cases of fraudulent containers earning money from the Emaus name.”
Any business, company or individual that thinks they might be able to help Emaus to raise funds are asked to contact the project manager Martin Kyme who will provide an official container.
The logo of each business or company will be uploaded for all to see on the Emaus Euro-a-Month website, which is backed and sponsored by actors and bosses from the ‘Benidorm’ television series.
All funds raised from the containers will go directly to Emaus and will not be blocked or embargoed by government banks. The amounts will be displayed in the press for all to see.
